Israeli teens found dead

Israeli forces have found the bodies of three missing teenagers in the occupied West Bank, after a nearly three-week-long search and a sweep against accused abductors the Islamist Hamas group.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has since summoned his security cabinet for a special session, that could decide on stronger military moves against Hamas.

But, while the US has condemned the kidnapping, the Obama administration has urged Israel to pursue a measured response.

Officials say the teens have apparently been shot, soon after having been abducted while hitchhiking.

Their bodies were reportedly found buried under rocks.
